$14B State Capital Plan for Transportation in Focus at Cape Cod Meeting

KA_Plymouth Buzzards Bay_Road Traffic Signs_Highway_Route 6_Exit_Winter_Cloudy_020316_018HYANNIS  – State transportation officials are asking for feedback on a five-year, $14.3 billion blueprint for shoring up roads, bridges, public transit and other infrastructure.

Five public meetings will take place across the state this week, including one in Hyannis on Wednesday.

The first session will take place Monday night in Fitchburg.

State Transportation Secretary Stephanie Pollack says the plan would target more capital spending on improvements in existing transportation infrastructure, and far less on new projects or expansion.

The plan includes $2 billion to address structurally deficient bridges.

There would be some money set aside for study or design work on possible new projects such as South Coast commuter rail, the Green Line extension and renovation of Boston’s South Station.

Other meetings are scheduled this coming week in Framingham, Greenfield and New Bedford.
